We all have weeks where we lose 1 pound and were wishing for more. Sometimes it can be discouraging. I found this calendar of loss when I was cleaning out drawers and thought it might be motivational.

If I lost 1 pound each week of 2008:

By Valentine's Day... I'd be 7 pounds lighter

By St. Patrick's Day... I'd be 11 pounds lighter

By Easter... I'd be 16 pounds lighter

By Memorial Day... I'd be 23 pounds lighter

By Flag Day... I'd be 25 pounds lighter

By U.S. Independence Day... I'd be 27 pounds lighter

By Labor Day... I'd be 36 pounds lighter

By Columbus Day... I'd be 41 pounds lighter

By Halloween... I'd be 44 pounds lghter

By Thanksgiving... I'd be 47 pounds lighter

By Christmas Eve... I'd be 51 pounds lighter

And By this time next year..... I'd be 52 pounds lighter

Makes the 1 pound loss seem more exciting doesn't it? Sorry to all my friends in Canada the paper I found only had U.S. holidays
